IWC has reimagined their Da Vinci line, foregoing the recent tonneau shape for a more classic round case. The new IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watches doesn’t hearken too far back, though, drawing clear inspiration from the Da Vinci SL Automatic from the late 1990s.
The “female target group as main focus of interest” at IWC with the Da Vinci collection this year, this 40mm IWC Replica Watches is released alongside the 36mm IWC Da Vinci Automatic 36 watch. The model we are covering in this article is 40mm wide and 10mm thin, with a 30m water-resistance. Large enough for him, small enough for her, I suppose. The automatic IWC 35111 movement inside is a base Sellita SW300-1 with 42 hours of power reserve operating at 4Hz.
One other thing that may not be immediately apparent about the Cheap IWC Replica is the fact that the lugs are articulating, or hinged. Basically, that means that you should get a very comfortable fit on your wrist, even if your wrists are on the smaller side. I’ve experienced this type of lug on other watches, and it does make for a better fit – at 40mm, of course, there will be no worries about “lug overhang” anyway.
It does put a question in my mind, though – what designer thought that this was the right positioning to put the date window in? It’s simply jarring. Not that it’s at 6 o’clock, but the fact that it does not follow with the Fake IWC Watches circle that the numeral indices are creating. Even if they had aligned the top edge of the date window with the line drawn from the tops of the 7 and the 5, I could maybe let it slide.
The IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watch is sized at 40mm, which by modern standards can often be considered a unisex size. It’s slim at 10mm thick and the proportions are ideal for a watch that’s meant for both men and women. I, for one, don’t have much of an issue with a 40mm case and find these measurements to exist somewhere within the sweet spot in terms of comfort and versatility. It’s good to see IWC Replica Watches push women’s watches that aren’t exactly dainty or explicitly feminine as well.
The dial is simple, which can mean elegant for some or boring for others. With a time-only layout and unobtrusive date placement at 6 o’clock sitting within a well-contrasted seconds track. Both the Cheap IWC Replica silver-plated and slate dial finishes serve as nice backdrops for the polished Arabic numerals and the lancet-shaped hands, which are both color-matched for their respective dials.
A noticeable feature is the set of horn lugs which are hinged and meant to adjust to the wrist’s contours for a closer fit. It’s a great addition for smaller wrists and a design touch that recalls some of the earlier watches in the Fake IWC Watches Da Vinci collection like the Da Vinci SL Automatic Ref. 3528.
The movement powering the IWC Da Vinci Replica Watches Automatic is the caliber 35111. This is an IWC modified Selita SW300-1 that operates at 28,800A/h and features 42 hours of power reserve. It’s a robust choice for a movement that’s truly serviceable with a reliable track record. Solid, inoffensive, and reliable, the movement is basically like the watch itself.
Updated on the IWC Portugieser Replica Automatic IW5007’s 31-jeweled and decorated movement is the self-winding mechanism: it is a pretty much wear-free system thanks to its use of ceramic parts. There are many exciting changes in comparison to the last 5001 iteration, and most of these changes really happen with the more open architecture, skeletonized rotor, how the watch winds, the layout of the bridges – and now you can both see and really feel how smooth the Pellaton automatic winding system is.
Despite its generous 42.3mm case and large dial space,IWC Portugieser Automatic IW5007 maintains its dressy-elegant looks. Notably, the IW5007 also became a bit thicker since the last update, inflating to 14.5mm in total thickness, compared to the original at 13.9mm thick. Cheap IWC Replica has closed the space between the lugs and strap, as well as reduced the length of the lugs slightly all the while making them more burly.
Speaking of casual, that was my initial goal, so I took the wonderfully done 22mm black alligator leather strap and swapped it for a dark navy steerhide leather with off-white full stitch from Europelli straps. I’m a big guy with 8 1/2″ wrists, so before I purchased the IWC Replica Watches I was concerned that 42.3mm would be too small, as my “sweet spot” in any timepiece genre lies between 44-45mm. Well, while it might seem large for small-wristed collectors, it was a solid fit for my larger wrist.
The Fake IWC Watches Portugieser Automatic IW5007 also has a convex, dual-antireflective-coated sapphire crystal, as well as a sapphire crystal on the case-back. The decoration of the lugs, bezel, and case-back consist of polished surfaces with the sides of the case done in a finely satin-finished look. Curved lugs and curved spring bars really make it a more streamlined look as the strap meets the case much more effectively, making for a more integrated look when compared to the 5001.
